22. Suriname – Block 58, Apache, Sapakara West-1 prospect

22 Suriname – Block 58, Apache, Sapakara West-1 prospect V.5.2.20

My best educated guess:

Will be 2nd significant petroleum (light oil & condensate) discovery offshore Suriname.

Why?
Block 58 is part of the east side of, what I call the “ Golden Lane of Guiana-Suriname Basin “.

Sapakara West 1 Location map:

Sapakara West 1
Sapakara West 1

Block 58 and bordering area presents a very similar
hydrocarbon habitat, with strong discovery-prone fundamentals, just as the previous major/giant Guyana discoveries.

Critical geological exploration & discovery success factors, in my humble opinion, till now are:

1) Fan systems in the “ deeper, third “ terrace or Cretaceous (deep) offshore area.
North of Cretaceous continental / basin margin.

2) Located above and/or close to the prolific mature/late mature Canje source rock kitchen.
With short and minimal migration problems.

Liza habitat giant fields GSB
Liza and habitat of other giant fields in GSB -Basinfloor fans in “ Upper Cretaceous offshore area “; Reference eco.com, sept. 2018

Canje source rock is similar and time-equivalent (” family “) to famous Venezuelan, La Luna & Querecual source rocks.

The latters have generated some 300 billion barrels of proven reserves.
Some 100 billion bbls in Maracaibo Basin, some 200 billion in Orinoco Heavy Oil Belt (Ref. e.g. my own publications on these, also on this website).

My own geo-mindbreakers, have never seen any published data (yet) on this ?

Kitchens GSB – Repsol – Reference: eco.com, sept 2018

a) How many billion barrels of petroleum were generated in Guiana-Suriname Basin, (just) from Canje source rock ?

…Major oil and gas generation from kerogen occurs between 120 and 150°C in the subsurface…

…gas generation continues to temperatures ⪢ 160°C

b) How many km2 area does Canje cover?

c) How thick is Canje source rock (on average) ?

d) How much TOC content, on average ?

d) What is the volume in km3 of Canje source rocks ?

e) What is the total generation potential of 1 m3 Canje source rock, based on geochemical lab results ?

…> 5 kgt−1 of rock and average organic carbon contents > 1.5% expel 60–90% of the total oil generated.

f) What is the generation potential during the successive maturation stages (early, middle, late stages).

FYI:

The richness calculated to be between 9 – 41 MMboe/km 2, for similar La Luna / Villeta S.R..

For example, in Norean-1 well, La Luna is 546 m thick with an average TOC value of 3.14 wt%; the Hydrogen Index (HI) is close to 302 mgHC/gTOC, and the S2 ranges from 5 to 27 mg/gRock

g) Where are the different area maps of the successive maturity phases ?

h) Reason?

23. Lousy Scammers

Scammer from Togo
Scammer from Togo

23. Lousy scamMERS V.3.11.19

Scammers ?

Almost everybody nowadays receives lousy scam letters.

Very annoying, digital thieves, e-robbers, pick-pockets in e-times.

Who are these people ? Habitat and Ecosystem ?

Scammers, phishers ?
Son “ Ratas de dos patas” or ” Rats on 2 legs “:

https://youtu.be/K9I9KlbJ9zI

https://youtu.be/9obV__MFMaY

Thieves have always existed and will unfortunately always exist in this unique planet and precious Milkey Way galaxy. Like toxic and malicious viruses and bacteria.

These are real cowards. They never show their true face. They are roaming and flying in the virtual internet space. If one would get robbed in the street at least one could fight them, hit back and knock them knock-out. But these are authentic invisible cowards. Like mosquitos in the dark.

Scammer Togo
Scammer Togo

Modus operandi ?

They usually take some temporary, complicated and unusual email address that they abandon as soon if things get too hot. Usually they invent some dreary fairy tale about millions that they have in mind, saved especially for you, oh lucky you.

Very annoying, horrible false stories and always the same style. So crippled that they themselves do not believe it.

Where are they located?

Difficult to know who they are or to track?

In a VPRO documentary on tv, filmed with a small and hidden film camera, they visited and tracked Russia and a few Northwest African countries. Where one could see many, many of these scammers working. Incredible, a whole swarm of scammers. Like a swarm of dengue mosquitos in the bush. Most in small shops, more so shacks with internet. Where they spent the whole lousy day. Inventing how to scam and rob globally via internet. With all kind of magical stories. Mainly $$ millions that they have saved especially for you, only you.

Studies in Germany have indicated that in several countries e-crime is increasing, and also related with deteriorating economic conditions.

What about all the bitcoin internet criminals in Benin City, Nigeria, the Yahoo Boys and also in Siberia ? It is almost a lifestyle. Using stolen pictures and identities of people in e.g. Europe and The Netherlands for fraud with bitcoins etc. and using an IP address from Amsterdam.

Sometimes, all of a sudden a call on your mobile, phishers from Algeria: +213 5 58850457, 23-11-2019, +213 5 582 85 321, 23-11-2019, +213 6 63 81 0182. 30-9-2019, Algeria

Where do they get your email?

A lot of scammers get email addresses from Facebook and they first pry data on LinkedIn.

Some try to be clever and first set up a fake and void LinkedIn account. Without any verifiable background or study and work history. Followed by some lousy, curved and crippled story that is linked to your work and profile and experience. These scammers then sent a short, fugitive message via LinkedIn. The so-called intellectual scammers. Mainly those weirdos that present themselves as a banker or financier.

Most others are kind of stupid, low education scammers. You can immediately tell from the crippled english they use, the number of typing errors. And the horrible and unbelievable financial fairy tales they write up.

Sometimes they are very resilient, though. And pop up again later. With a different funny name and email address. But with the same stupid message.

Maybe they should first take the time to read and study some literature such as Harry Potter.

Or Ernest Hemingway. To learn how to compose a nice and short essay that everyone would buy…

Or who knows, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the protagonist of wonderful magical realism. And who knows they could even win the Nobel Prize literature. Awarded because of “ Outstanding Anthologies of Super Stupid Scam Letters “.

Others first pry my website?

When I see in my Google Analytics, and additional related Software that detects the IP of the sender, that a visitor from an African country like Togo, Nigeria, Algeria or Russia has visited my site?

Hm, hmmm, hmmm.

Most often ?

Soon afterwards I can see scam or phishing coming in.

As a rule of thumb.

Just see below the scam letters from Burkina Faso, Togo, Tunisia, Nigeria, Russia, Malaysia etc.

Others and other places?

Lots of scammers and phishers like to invent and believe themselves that they are bankers or financiers, such as living in the Middle East. That they have a special deal for me, for you. Especially for me. Ohhh, what a lucky guy. With some fake invented address and so-called with their office situated in a luxury tower or mall in Dubai.
This while they themselves are sitting in some lousy shack in the middle of nowhere.

Or sitting on a donkey somewhere with wifi.

Usually I recommend these high flying virtual bankers and financiers most seriously to fly in their private mini jet to Schiphol Airport.

In their Gulfstream G650 of $65 million that they sure own.

So that we can have a serious F2F business meeting in the nearby WTC office.

But ?

Never get an answer on this.

Normally I also solicit them to sent me copy of their passport, identity card, home phone number and phone numbers of 5 business persons that I could call to verify ?

Never get an answer.

Just this intelligent Togo scammer on the photo.

Most probably a stolen or fake passport and diploma.

From Brasil?

From her work email, maria.calil@goiasprev.go.gov.br, Goias state government.

Most iconic this one. From a government official. Mind you. Taking her precious time at work to scam others from her office. From capital Brasilia, designed by famous architect Oscar Niemeyer.
With some fake chinese name, to make me enthusiastic she hopes. And text in indonesian. Under fake name Wang Jianlin1, what a creative toxic mind this lady scammer, with text:

Halo teman, Anda telah diberikan balasan donasi untuk lebih jelasnya. Translated, Hello friends, you have been given a donation reply for more details. (Ja ja jaaaa, much better, why not, an invitation in indonesian to dance Samba on Copacabana beach…).

Should resent this email to president Bolsonaro.

Or to ex-president Lula, who now has plenty of time. Just freed from prison where he was for corruption. Accepted e.g. his penthouse as a gift from some entrepreneur that got lucrative contracts during his government.

Curious?

I also got one from a Venezuela related person or maybe Venezuelan. I noted from the typical and key Venezuelan words he (she) used. Offering some vague and corrupt business deal, as he claimed to have good and swift contacts in high echelons in the oil industry and government…

Another one with outstanding, outrageous “ corruption genes “ in his body, blood and brains. That by the way also helped to ruin his whole native country, from riches to rags in just 2 decades.

Sure, he had previously seen on LinkedIn and on my website that I lived and worked in Venezuela. So, let’s try if we can fish and catch this one.

How stupid, que auténtico cabron/cabrona. Who knows somewhere from a shack in Petare or Cementerio slums. Que degenerado HijodP y CñdMadre

They themselves most probably are sitting in some poor shack. With a hungry stomach, probably without light, in ragged pants, a third-hand dirty T-shirt and worn-out slippers. Banging their poor brains to invent some wonderful Abrakadabra financial fairy tale.

Though?

Sometimes, from somewhere,  you get fake job offers with a most fabulous fake contract, so-called from a well known oil company. Normally with an email that resembles that of the firm, a stolen logo, slightly adapted and changed so that you do not note at first sight. But to proceed, you are kindly asked to first deposit money for your visa. Ha ha haaa, how clever, pay in advance.

From India?

Mostly scam and business offering to improve your website, SEO etc.

How to eradicate?  

Fortunately most of this mail goes automatically to the Spam box.

Others I just erase.

How to proceed? 

With those scam emails that do sneak in my normal inbox ?

Sometimes?

If I am in the mood, if I have time, I answer most enthusiastic and inspired ?

By vomiting a boisterous river and plethora of the most horrible swearings, insults and curses that occurred and flashed-up to my poor brain during a special and magical moment of intense inspiration ?

Yes, indeed. A most memorable email I wrote after I had received a whole bunch of scam letters in just one day.

And ?

Resent this splendid email, sometimes up to several hundreds of times, with a copy to all the scam addresses and dearest Scammers that have written me through time.

Just click 100+ times on “Resent “.

Till the computer returns the message:

Mailbox of receiver full, not able to deliver “.

Mailbox of the Scammers busted. How devine.

Accompanied by attached picture.

My ” Answer Macro letter “ is always ready in my ” Starred ” email box.

Waiting most patiently for other dear scammers, to be fired and used.

And to be resent some hundred+ times.
As well as to the previous scammers that are always happily included as a copy. To make sure they all get it. All scammers happy together. Enjoying each others invented stupid scam stories.

Does this work?

Who knows.

Hopefully.

At least I busted their inbox.

And freaked them out for the moment being.

Maybe ?

They will soon get together and establish,

” The Non-Profit Humanitarian Organisation of Global Lousy Scammers “. Who knows.

Scammers.

  2. Best friend, My name is Mrs. Patricia Gunnarsson from Ireland, married to Late Engr George Gunnarsson {PhD}, who worked for 19 years at Tullow Oil plc, a multinational oil and gas exploration company in London, before he died on August 25, 2013. We were married 24 years without a child. My husband died after a short illness, which lasted only four days. When my late husband was still alive, he deposited $ 3,200,000 on his offshore account at Cahoot Bank London, UK. and this fund is currently at the bank, waiting for the day on which I will use it.Even before my marriage, I was a lung cancer patient and recently my doctor told me that I would not live longer than the next month as my lung cancer is now worse. What bothers me most is my stroke. After knowing my condition, I decided to look for a sincere person to donate the fund to a church or better to motherless orphanages.I’m contacting you because I want a church or an individual to use this money to fund churches, orphanages, and widows to ensure that God’s will is maintained. I made this decision because I have no child who will inherit this money.
    I can no longer rely on the family of my deceased husband because they will never use the money as God pleases. Instead, they use the money for their personal needs, and I do not want that to happen.In this regard, I sincerely ask for your support in this humanitarian work for Christ. I would like the bank to transfer this fund to your bank account so that you use 60% of the fund to help the following people: 1. The motherless babies, 2, churches. 3, widows. 4, disable people. And then use the remaining 40% of the fund for you and your family. If you accept this humanitarian work, you must promise me that you would not disappoint me if the amount is transferred to your bank account in your country. In addition, you assure me that you use the 60% of the money for the stated purposeIf you are interested in this work of God, please respond, so that I can tell you all details about the bank and how the money will be transferred to your bank account for this purpose.For more information please contact me via my private email: patriciag@mail2patricia.comYours sincerely,
    Mrs. Patricia Gunnarsson (poor Patricia, she is finally dying and leaving good money for you…ha ha haaa, what a miserable joke. What a sick and toxic mind, using God, Christ and orphanages for scamming).

  8. FRom: IlxSSxhvmzMjOP8TN4wO@mail.irreleases.com 15/11/2019 – PARTNERSHIP PROPOSAL. Greetings to you.I want to first request that the details of this letter be kept strictly confidential. My intention is to partner with you in the sharing of $18.41 million.
    I am Mr. Ali Abdullah, director of human resources and administration of Majid Saiyad Energy Group (MSEG). MSEG has just concluded the building project of a $92.41 million Health Research Facility in Wien, Austria which will be launched on the 3rd of December 2019. As the main member in the Project Contract Review Panel (PCRP), I am solely responsible for approving budget figures and contractor payout.During the project initiation, my colleague and I over-invoiced the construction supply invoice by a total of $18.41 million. We feel this amount is well deserved considering our input to the general growth of MSEG. Now that the project has been concluded, the over-invoiced amount is deposited with an offshore bank awaiting claim by authorized project contractor.Since we are directly linked to MSEG we cannot establish a claim on the funds as this will raise suspicion and a cause for unnecessary investigation into the project finance.
    We desperately seek your consent to present you as an authorized project contractor to enable you claim the over-invoiced amount ($18.41 million) and further remit payment to us. We are willing to compensate you with a sum of $2million for your partnership.This venture is 100% risk free and we DO NOT require any financial commitment from you. All expenses required to successfully complete the transaction will be covered by us.Your urgent response will be appreciated. You may contact me by email; aliabdullahmajidsaiyadenergy@gmail.comThank you for your attention, Hope to hearing from you soonest.Sincerely, Ali Abdullah Director Human Resources & Administration               (Ha ha haaa, another AliBaba Camel form the Desert…)

207. On 29 March 2018, Guyana filed an Application instituting proceedings against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

208. In its Application, Guyana requested the Court “to confirm the legal validity and binding effect of the Award Regarding the Boundary between the Colony of British Guiana and the United States of Venezuela, of 3 October 1899”. The Applicant claimed that the 1899 Award was “‘a full, perfect, and final settlement’ of all questions

44/69 (19-13600)

45/69

relating to determining the boundary line between the colony of British Guiana and Venezuela”.

209. Guyana asserted that between November 1900 and June 1904, a joint Anglo- Venezuelan Boundary Commission had “identified, demarcated and permanently fixed the boundary established by the … Award” before the signing of a Joint Declaration by the Commissioners on 10 January 1905 (referred to as “the 1905 Agreement”).

210. Guyana contended that, in 1962, for the first time, Venezuela had contested the Award as “arbitrary” and “null and void”. This, according to the Applicant, had led to the signing of the Agreement to resolve the controversy between Venezuela and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland over the frontier between Venezuela and British Guiana at Geneva on 17 February 1966, which “provided for recourse to a series of dispute settlement mechanisms to finally resolve the controversy”.

211. Guyana further submitted that the Geneva Agreement had authorized the United Nations Secretary-General to decide which appropriate dispute resolution mechanism to adopt for the peaceful settlement of the dispute, in accordance with Article 33 of the United Nations Charter. According to the Applicant:

“On 30 January 2018, … Secretary-General [H.E.] António Guterres determined that the good offices process had failed to achieve a peaceful settlement of the controversy. He then took a formal and binding decision, under Article IV, paragraph 2 of the Agreement, to choose a different means of settlement under Article 33 of the Charter. In identical letters to both Parties, he communicated the terms of his decision that, pursuant to the authority vested in him by the Geneva Agreement, the controversy shall be settled by recourse to the International Court of Justice.”

212. In its Application, filed “pursuant to the Secretary-General’s decision”, Guyana requested the Court to adjudge and declare that:

“(a) The 1899 Award [was] valid and binding upon Guyana and Venezuela, and the boundary established by that Award and the 1905 Agreement [was] valid and binding upon Guyana and Venezuela;

  1. (b)  Guyana enjoy[ed] full sovereignty over the territory between the Essequibo River and the boundary established by the 1899 Award and the 1905 Agreement, and Venezuela enjoy[ed] full sovereignty over the territory west of that boundary; Guyana and Venezuela [were] under an obligation to fully respect each other’s sovereignty and territorial integrity in accordance with the boundary established by the 1899 Award and the 1905 Agreement;
  2. (c)  Venezuela [had to] immediately withdraw from and cease its occupation of the eastern half of the Island of Ankoko, and each and every other territory which [was] recognized as Guyana’s sovereign territory in accordance with the 1899 Award and 1905 Agreement;
  3. (d)  Venezuela [had to] refrain from threatening or using force against any person and/or company licensed by Guyana or engage in economic or commercial activity in Guyanese territory as determined by the 1899 Award and 1905 Agreement, or in any maritime areas appurtenant to such territory over which Guyana ha[d] sovereignty or exercise[d] sovereign rights, and shall not interfere with any Guyanese or Guyanese-authorised activities in those areas;
  4. (e)  Venezuela [was] internationally responsible for violations of Guyana’s sovereignty and sovereign rights, and for all injuries suffered by Guyana as a consequence.”

46/69 (A/74/4)

213. By an Order dated 19 June 2018, the Court decided that the written pleadings in the case must first address the question of the jurisdiction of the Courtand fixed 19 November 2018 and 18 April 2019as the respective time-limits for the filing of a Memorial by Guyana and a Counter-Memorial by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

214. The Court took this decision following a meeting held on 18 June 2018 with representatives of the parties.

215. The Memorial of Guyana was filedwithin the time-limit thus fixed.

  • My own notes and musings, as a simple petroleum exploration geologist.

a) Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela did not file a Counter-Memorial.

As they already previously indicated they do not consider that ICJ has the jurisdiction to rule and decide on this ” Controversy “.

So, what is ahead ?

All the time and money spent via ICJ was lost, for nothing ?

Who is going to decide ?

Who has jurisdiction ?

b) What would Hugo Grotius have  thought or said on this subject?

He was one of the first to formulate the international society doctrine.

As well as one of the first to define expressly the idea of one society of states, governed not by force or warfare.

But by actual laws and mutual agreement to enforce those laws.

c) Hugo Grotius, famous Dutch jurist: De Indis and Mare Liberum

Hugo Grotius - Delft -
Hugo Grotius – Delft, his native town. – He lived on Oude Langedijk, near to the Nieuwe Kerk. The house does not exist anymore. But was probably located in the area of this, my own, picture.

Tip?

Giant fields are located on the lowermost “ Terrace “. So far 10/19.

Area of Upper Cretaceous rather flat-lying seafloor fans & associated sediments.
Located straight above the mature Canje source rocks kitchen. Where apparently the petroleum system works optimal.

Updip slope fans and fans/reservoirs in Tertiary involve a higher risk as far as migration, side and top seals is concerned.

Extending this cartoon, eastwards towards Sranankondre onshore 1 billion OOIP Tambaredjo field (1964).

A most simple Tambaredjo Exploration Quiz:

Oil from same Liza kitchen ?

Thus some 20 billion bbls needed to make a 1 billion bbls field at 150 km away:

Olympic Gold Medal Subsurface Longdistance Walking & Hurdling.

But?

Why not take it easy, why walk so far, zig-zagging, hurdling, sneaking around, escaping etc. If you have plenty of complacent reservoirs nearby?

Somewhat similar to voluntarily and with wanderlust trailing the 777 km Camino de Santiago trail from Roncesvalles to the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela on Plaza Obradoiro (https://mar-petroleumexplorationconsultant.com/9-dia-del-apostol-santiago-y-dia-de-la-patria-gallega-25-julio/)?

By the way, where are the other 18 billion bbls that initially accompanied me when expelled out of the kitchen, while traveling and venturing off the beaten paths towards Tambaredjo high ??
Sure, in-between, no doubt, totally agree.

Prize: A billion bbls field ?

  • Carapa-1 to be drilled: Reference, LI, Javed Razack, 20/10/19:

Rowan/Valaris EXL II jackup rig. Will drill 1 well, Carapa-1, for Repsol, Kanuku Block.

Carapa prospect is a 200-million-barrel Cretaceous target located in 70m of water.

The Kanuku block is almost 2000 sq km and operated by Repsol with a 37.5% stake. The partners are Tullow (37.5%) and Total (25%). With Tullow having back to back discoveries in 2019, it is certain that as a partner, Tullow will share their learnings, increasing the well’s chance of success.

Repsol has already hinted at 2 more exploration wells in 2020.

  • Jethro 1-Lobe discovery, 2019.

Clean Lower Tertiary amalgamated sandstone, 55 m. net, excellent reservoir. Clear seismic definition. Potential to be a standalone commercial discovery. Evaluating requirements for an appraisal well.

Well cost some $ 45 m.
Ref. Eco Atlantic, Colin Kinley, COO, 24-10-19.

Jethro, recent analysis (13/11/19) has shown that heavy oil was encountered.

  • Joe-1 discovery, 2019.

Well cost $21 m.
Proven reservoir, 16 m. net, and oil charge in Upper Tertiary sands.

Joe, recent analysis (13/11/19) has shown that heavy oil was encountered.

  • Jethro-1 and Joe-1 are mobile heavy crudes. Similar to the commercial heavy crudes (North Sea, Gulf of Mexico, Campos Basin, Venezuela and Angola) with high sulphur content.
  • Jethro-1 discovery has the advantage of 8,500 PSI reservoir (2,600 PSI Overpressure), which increases drive efficiency; high reservoir temperature of 94 degrees Celsius; and an estimated flowing well head temperature of 90 degrees.
    Both increases oil mobility and provides an advantage at the floating production facility. Ref. Energypedia, 13/11/19

  • Tullow shares tumble after warning on Guyana projects.

Such as Jimmy (2020?). Situated in same charged sands. 3D processing and interpretation ongoing to correlate with the 2 discoveries.

  • Eco Atlantic, 3/11/19, Exploration, discoveries, influence on share price;Twitter: Increases to discovered resource at Hammerhead and Jethro
    Hammerhead is a major discovery made by Exxon/Hess on the Stabroek Block, which extends onto the Orinduik Block. Eco believes ~10% of Hammerhead could lie on its block and Hammerhead could be 400-800mmboe gross. Eco’s last CPR (prior to the appraisal wells) only gave credit for 2mmboe net to Eco and we have increased this to 9mmboe based on 600mmboe gross, with 10% on the Orinduik block following the positive appraisal results reported by Hess/Exxon. This gives a risked value of 12p/sh or 19p/sh unrisked. On Jethro, we are upping the estimated recoverable resource estimate to 250mmboe from 215mmboe to reflect the results exceeding the partners’ pre-drill expectations. This gives a risked value of 46p/sh or 81p/sh unrisked. The pre-drill estimate for Jethro was 215mmboe in the CPR on a P50 basis or 340mmbbl on a P10 basis. In the P10 case, using an NPV of US$5/bbl, the discovery is worth >US$250mm net to Eco on an unrisked basis.

My best guess at this stage. Not found wat was hoped and expected ? Two intervals “ tested “ and cased of. Commercial amounts ? Some 200-300 million bbls? Decided to drill deeper for a Lower Cretaceous ? interval. Why? To find more reserves to make it commercial and make it fly ?

These sand rich amalgamated sea floor fans are sourced from the Corentyne incised valley, and lie directly on top of Cenomanian source beds. The target reservoir package pinches out both laterally and up dip via a stratigraphic or facies pinch out.

Some 5 billion bbls discovered.

Much more coming.

Rumoured in the global geo-grapevine.

Most ardently desired.

Simple questions ?

Does it line up withParisAgreement (1)?

How much#CO2 will these generate in the future (2)?

Sustainable included in the Green State Development Strategy?

Doesn’t matter, anyway, never thought of?

  • Facts:

Combined liquid fuels from an average barrel of crude oil produces a minimum of 327 kg #CO2 when consumed.

  • Thus: 5 billion X 317 kg = 1585 billion kg CO2.

Hmm, quite some… Convinced it was about close to nothing…

(= how much temperature increase + sealevel rise + etc. etc…

Sure, most interesting “ Sea-Level Rise Symposium, 4/10/2019).

Who cares anyway ? Shareholders? Stakeholders?
Any Guiana-Suriname Basin Greenpeace activist around or signaled on the horizon ? Not yet Mrs. Greta Thunberg to defend Mother Earth ?

  • CO2, Newsweek, By Ewan Palmer,

“ SHELL CEO says it’s entirely legitimate to invest in oil and gas after being named among 20 firms behind third of all carbon Emissions.

  • The company was ranked seventh out of the state and investor-owned firms who helped contribute to 480 billion tonnes (= 480 000 billion kilogram) of carbon dioxide equivalent in the modern era.

Van Beurden said. A bigger risk is prematurely turning your back on oil and gas.

Speaking to Reuters he was dismissing what he described as the “demonization” and “unjustified” concerns about the energy company’s future business model “.

Thus, entirely legitimate…

Question?

Is this more or less how it really was in Guiana-Suriname Basin ?

Since Upper Cretaceous to Recent.

As unveiled in present day offshore basins on different continents.

Sure, for the sake of simplicity.

Not even taken into account the large amount of fine-grained sediments in G-S basin, first since 10 Ma, provenant from Amazon river.

Increasing drastically since 4.5 Ma. Amazon River and the continental-scale Amazon drainage basin were assembled during the late Miocene and Pliocene.

The Surinam coast is part of the extensive tropical mud coast between the Amazon River and the Orinoco River. Classified as a low to medium energy coast.

A substantially longshore supply of mud originates from the Amazon River. The fine grained sediment (pelite) is transported in suspension and also deposited in the deeper parts of Guiana-Suriname Basin.

A little bit different though?

From the nostalgic or fairy tale-like character multi-colored geo-cartoons.

As usually presented on Investor Forums…

Enerverende dolce vita nella bella Italia. Certamente, caríssimi amici, ciao a tutti. Pasta, pizza, vino.

Remembering also the leisure escapes to the Italian Riviera and Monaco.

Wilbert & Josely, you will certainly recall. Barolo, Barbera, Lacrima Cristi wines, you were on honeymoon.

Moving to Venezuela, 1977-1989

Na afstuderen meteen gerold in een interesante baan bij de Geologische Dienst van Venezuela. Goud exploratie in het Precambrisch Schild. Most interesting, wow, hier had ik immers voor gestudeerd.

https://mar-petroleumexplorationconsultant.com/5-guyana-gold-mine/

This decade coincided with the golden oil boom of Venezuela, with Caracas as La Sucursal del Cielo. Similar to the prevailing ambience in A moveable feast in Paris, from Ernest Hemingway, pura fiesta y parrandas.

In 1980 gestapt in de olie, petroleum exploratie en productie in Petróleos de Venezuela met veelbelovende lange termijn carrière perspectieven. 

Een klassiek traject doorlopen, bottoms-up, hands-on across the ranks. Beginnend in iconic Maracaibo basin met E&P field operations, veldwerk, putten boren, olievelden zoeken en ontdekken. Doorstromend naar Research & Development instituut Intevep en hoofdkantoor.

Venezuela, La Sucursal del Cielo

A gifted place, most studied in tedious geology textbooks in Leiden now in my hands and at my footsteps, amazing.

Amazing and gifted indubitably? 6 Miss world, 7 miss universe titles. Precious, fashionable and elegant women, everyday, everywhere, really, unique, wow.

Geluk en succes gehad by contributing to the discovery van 2 giant oil fields.

6 Miljard vaten olie, a whole lot of oil.

More than all found in hotspot Guyana-Suriname basin, more than ever to be found in Holland. Tevens enige landmark petroleum publicaties.

https://mar-petroleumexplorationconsultant.com/ceuta-tomoporo-giant-field-discovery/

Geluk en succes bovenal gehad met de giant discovery van mijn lieve, lovely en loyale echtgenote. Ontdekt en getrouwd in Caracas.

Ze is van alles voor mij. Esposa, amante, amiga, confidente, moeder en ook kunstschilderes, all-in-1.

Zoonlief heeft gelukkige spaanssprekende kinderjaartjes doorgebracht in Caracas. Vervolgens in NL, altijd blijmoedig en de fortuinlijke winnaar van de Faas Wilkes award als talentvolle voetbal jeugdspeler. Heeft op Universiteit Leiden gestudeerd.

De Caracazo, een golf rellen, schietpartijen en bloedbaden in Caracas in februari 1989, was mijn duidelijke alarmbel dat het laatste rondtje was begonnen.

Carajo, time to move on diligently, se termino la fiesta.

Zie 30 jaar later.

De suïcidale afgrond waarin Venezuela zich eigenhandig gestort heeft door corrupte en ontspoorde machtspotentaten. From riches to rags. An emaciated dystopia.

Result ?

Precies als in Cronica de una muerte anunciada, thriller van Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Mijn lievelingschrijver sinds bewoner van Huize Maupertuus, gelegen schuin tegenover het vroegere huis van dichter Piet Paaltjens in Leiden.

Europe and other places, 1990 – Present

Nieuwjaar 1990 Den Haag binnengerold met een pracht baan als chief geologist bij een Amerikaanse oliemaatschappij. Hunt Dynasty familiebedrijf uit Dallas, van biljonairs Herbert, Bunker en zusters.

Petroleum zoeken, produceren, dus make money met technische en business-commercial development expertise, de hele cocktail.

Outperforming major competitors in Dutch North Sea, with hugh gas discoveries in this super mature basin as with iconic G17, the only major stratigraphic trap.

Straightforward, korte, snelle beslissingslijnen.

De afleveringen van Dallas tv soapserie met hoofdrolspeler J.R., gebaseerd op hun olie saga weleens gezien ?

Gelukkig had ik een breed scala aan verantwoordelijkheden met veel autonomie.

Geology & Geophysics offshore taken. Met business-commercial development, merger, acquisitions, new ventures. Zoals in Hongarije, California, Moskou en Siberië tijdens Gorbachov time. Never a quiet or dull moment.

” Upgrade to an allround expert, Herbert informed me “, gevolgd door drie jaar studie, executive business administration, petroleum management en Russisch, bovenop mijn normale werkweek. Dus weer 2 M.Sc. bullen gehaald, nu op mijn 51ste, continual development of knowledge, competencies and skills.

Exciting time with many tales along the road. With the Hunt’s to Moscou and Siberië. Hunting for business in times of communism. 

Anecdotes, beginning in Dallas in their impressive oak boardroom with mahogany oval table and leather chairs in their Thanksgiving Tower skyscraper. And during lunches in elite Dallas Petroleum Club.

Then when Herbert whispered, with a malicious eyewink, “ Indeed, you made sure we get the big bang for our invested bucks “. While toasting Russian style with bottles of wodka at breakfast. Sealing the deal with the board of Tomsk Neft, in Strezhevoy, in the middle of Dostoyevsky’s Siberia.

Hunt Dynasty
Hunt Dynasty: Herbert, Bunker, Lamar and sisters, owners of Placid Oil.
Consultant sinds 2005

Simultaan pensioen en consultancy binnengestapt na 3 decennia iedere dag hard bikkelen. Niet voorgoed de ballen ermee, geen geraniums of zwarte gaten bestuderen, nog niet.

Most happy and free like a bird on a wire.

Great time, alleen uitdagende, succesvol uitvoerbare projecten met een degelijk consultancy contract.

Zoals voor Repsol vanuit head office Madrid, als upstream business development manager, olievelden evalueren en kopen.

Stewardship voor het 2 miljard US$ bod op een West Afrikaans olieveld. En deelname aan een licensing round en NLG project in Nigeria.

Madrid and Spain ?

Excelente sitio, cultuur, gastronomie, mode en uitgaansleven everyday, a big city with a most exiting vibe and appealing life-style.

Tasca’s, restaurants, flamenco, corrida’s de toros, art exhibitions, Real Madrid in Bernabeu met Robben, van Nistelrooy and regularly getting kicked out at closing time in Cafe Bohemio at 04:00 a.m..

Great time.

Certainly with the company’s grand penthouse in the financial district and accompanying executive business credit card, wow, good to have one.

De Madrid para el Cielo.

Suriname, Staatsolie 

Heel offshore onderzocht, gepromoot, petroleum contracten opgesteld en onderhandeld met international oil companies. Dit jaar de 1ste grote offshore discovery met de Maka Central 1 put in blok 58. Wow, de oil boom is begonnen in Suriname.

Bijdrage mogen leveren aan het bepalen van de Extended Continental Shelf grens. Maximum extension possible obtained, from the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, in N.Y..

Staatsrechtelijk uiterst belangrijk historisch moment. Nu zijn al de landsgrenzen immers definitief vastgesteld. Privileged that I could serve Sranankondre, geboorteland van mijn ouders.

https://mar-petroleumexplorationconsultant.com/28-suriname-outer-limits-of-the-continental-shelf/

Paramaribo, further ?

Vruchtbare tijd op het werk en als mentor, afstudeercommissie lid van mijn thesis studenten op de universiteit, zelf ook veel geleerd. 

Daarnaast chillen, all the time.

Met de talloze vrienden en familieleden van mijn ouders’ kant. Etentje hier, uitstapje daar, feestje hier, toevallig daar.

Super great to have loving, supportive family around. Also Maria painting at Nola Hatterman Art Academy, preparing her exposition Tribute to Suriname and all chilling in Torarica country club.

Ook iedere maand een weekend naar geboorte-eiland Curacao.

Salseros por fin ?

Oiga mi gente, ahora somos salseros. Porque sin salsa no hay paraíso, si señor.

Twee jaar intensieve wekelijkse lessen gevolgd, de salsa & bachata cursussen bij 4 dance academies.  Workshops, oefenen, up to 8 hours weekly.

Fun?

Damned hard and tedious work for old-timers, in Friolandia, Curaçao en Colombia, meestal met jongeren. 

Now graduated salseros. With lots of shines, smiles and moves at dance parties everywhere. To keep on moving with the thrill of fun.

A bailar se dijo, a mover los pies y las caderas, wow, a gozar mi preciosa mamita.

Listen and enjoy  https://youtu.be/k2wey5o2yBc

18. Gabriél García Marquez, Última Carta

18. Gabriél García Marquez, Última Carta después de Cien Años de Soledad

Gabriél García Marquez
Gabriél García Marquez
Preludio

Por aventurarme a leer Cien Años de Soledad quedé atrapado en Cien Años de GaboLectura.

Un peregrinaje con los ojos. Parecido al peregrinaje a Santiago de Compostela desde Roncesvalles ?

Total 127 185 palabras. Nueve horas de lectura, con una velocidad de 250 palabras por minuto. Cien Años de Felicidad.

Luego.

Contagiado felízmente por la GaboMania ?

Finales años setenta, Lugdunum Batavorum, o sea simplemente Leiden, Holanda. No, librería Kooyker en Breestraat no lo tenía. Amazon.com todavía estaba por ser inventado. Tocó viajar en tren a Amsterdam, librería Atheneum. La primera edición fue en Buenos Aires, 8000 libros en mayo 1967. Conseguí la edición 48, de diciembre 1976, en español. Actualmente ya tiene mas de 100 ediciones, 50 millones vendidos y traducidos en 50 lenguas.

La edición en ruso compré también ?

 En Los Tiempos del Socialismo. En los Tiempos de La Guerra Fría. En los Tiempos de Setenta y Cinco Años Comunismo. CCCP, 8 Novyy Arbat, Moscú 119019, una de sus avenidas icónicas. Kalinin Prospect se llamaba entonces.

Donde Moskovskiy Dom Knigi o Moscow House of Books, la gigantesca y mas famosa librería de Moscú. Un paraíso para bibliófilos. De veras. La mejor librería que había visitado. Sitio oficial donde se podía comprar también auténticos íconos históricos rusos.

Casualidad ?

 Buscando el libro en la descomunal Dom Knigi encontré y conversé con unos estudiantes de Colombia, radicados en Moscú. Ellos me indicaron donde encontrar la edición rusa.

Moscú y Siberia, por negocios petroleros, mayo 1992 ?

Tiempos de Glasnost y Perestroika, La Apertura y la Re-estructuración de Michael Gorbachov. El tan adorado comunismo casi hecho añicos. CCCP en vías de transmutarse al tan detestado capitalismo.

Finales de los setenta GGM se perfilaba firmemente como un importante escritor global. Fue inefugable, tenía que proseguir leyendo todos sus otros libros. Once novelas, doce cuentos y 22 no-ficciones. Mientras se fueran publicando, siempre entre los primeros en comprarlos.

Gratamente me motivó adicionalmente para visitar muchos sitios curiosos cuales fueron inspiración, escenario y el entorno de los relatos de GGM.

Caracas, Cuando era felíz  e indocumentado.

Paris, rue Cujas 16, hôtel de Flandres, ou il écrivit en 1956 ses romans Pas de lettre pour le colonel et La mala hora.

Cartagena, El amor en los tiempos del cólera.

Noreste de Colombia, territorio de numerosos de sus relatos. Valledupar con su Festival de la Leyenda Vallenata. La parranda del siglo, la máxima fiesta de la cultura folclórica popular que se celebra todos los años a finales de abril. Donde se reúnen los mejores compositores e intérpretes de los diferentes aires del vallenato, el merengue, la puya, el paseo y el son.

” Cien años de soledad no es más que un intento por escribir un vallenato de 450 páginas “, 

indicó GGM en una entrevista. Tremendo vallenato es ese, que lo cuenta todo.

La saga de la familia Buendía y el rosario de historias de Macondo eran una forma escrita de contar lo que cantaban los juglares vallenatos al son del acordeón.

” Garcia Marquez elevó el vallenato a las alturas del mito cuando lo incorporó a Cien anos de soledad. Uno de sus entrañables personajes, Aureliano Segundo, se echa a perder por culpa del acordeón. Instrumento que su madre Ursula Iguarán considera propio de los vagabundos herederos de Francisco el Hombre.

Hipnotizado por las parrandas, el trago y las mujeres, abandona su hogar y a su esposa, la cachaca Fernanda del Carpio, y se marcha tras el eco de las cajas y guacharacas “(Daniel Samper Pizano, 17 abril 2014, El Tiempo).

Festival Vallenato, Valledupar
Festival Vallenato, Valledupar

” Caballero, permitame felicitarte “, lo dije durante la tremenda parranda espontánea que se armó en momentos de la cena en nuestro hotel mutuo. “ No soy experto en esta materia, pero simplemente escucho que usted es un acordeonista de clase exceptional.

Claro que si !

Soy el Rey de Reyes del Festival de la Leyenda Vallenata 2006, nos dijo con singular humildad y cortesía. Mucho gusto, un gran placer. Aquí te doy mi tarjeta. Desde ahora ustedes están invitados a todas mis parrandas y actuaciones durante este Festival “.

Hipnotizado por los 7 días de parrandas y por culpa del acordeón yo mismo casi me echo a perder y me marcho tras el eco de las cajas y guacharacas. En aquel imborrable Festival de la Leyenda Vallenata en Valledupar.

El único y primer músico de vallenato cachaco y del interior del país que se ha impuesto en Valledupar. Hoy en día es nuestro entrañable amigo.

 Siempre se dijo que cuando GGM era pobre y desconocido, había cantado vallenatos en las calles de Paris. Como recurso para recoger algunos francos en los momentos mas duros de su estancia en Europa. Así lo relata su amigo de siempre Plinio Apuleyo Mendoza.

Atrapado estuve yo también para estudiar libros escritos sobre el y su obra.  Biografías, entrevistas, anécdotas, películas y programas televisivos.

 Aún me toca leer la tesis doctoral de Mario Vargas Llosa, 667 páginas sobre García Márquez: historia de un deicidio. Su amigo con quien tenía una particular amistad ? Hasta aquel gran disgusto en cual terminó para siempre la buena relación con su compadre.

” The infamous incident outside a cinema in Mexico City when MVL punched GGM in the face during their argument about Cuba.”

Cien Años de Soledad - Gabriél García Marquez
Cien Años de Solэdad – Gabriél García Marquez – Mi ejemplar. Esta portada no salió en la primera impresión, sino después en una que se le había comisionado al artista mexicano Vicente Rojo. Era una referencia al juego de dados que se llama ” Macondo “, como el pueblo de “Cien años de soledad”. Al empezar a recibir la edición, muchos libreros comenzaron a quejarse porque una “e” aparecía invertida. “Decían: ‘Me llegó la edición, pero con un problema, es que la ‘e’ está mal impresa”. Varios hasta llegaron a devolver ejemplares. Sin embargo, había sido una decisión de Rojo. Se empezó a vender de una manera que el propio García Márquez no entendía, que nadie entendía. Nota: actualmente la utilización de letras invertidas es muy común, para atraer la atención.

Cuando Garcia Marquez falleció en Ciudad Mexico ?

Este jueves 17 abril 2014 y después estuve en Colombia. Por la cual tuve la espléndida oportunidad y buena suerte de poder seguir durante varios días una extensa serie de programas, entrevistas, anécdotas inéditas hasta este momento y actos conmemorativas en la television, radio y prensa escrita. Pude palpar la influencia masiva que el tuvo en su país natal.

Fascinación por el realismo mágico de Gabriél García Marquez, tal como tantos otros 50 millones de lectores.

Lo siguiente aparentemente es la última carta de Gabriel García Márquez, escrito para todos sus amigos.

La Ultima Carta

Cuando Gabriel García Márquez se retira de la vida pública por padecer cáncer linfático, envió una carta de despedida a sus amigos, y gracias a internet está siendo difundida.

Es verdaderamente conmovedora; está escrita por él; uno de los latinoamericanos más brillantes de los últimos tiempos.

Dice así:

“ Si por un instante Dios se olvidara de que soy una marioneta de trapo y me regalara un trozo de vida, aprovecharía ese tiempo lo más que pudiera, posiblemente no diría todo lo que pienso, pero en definitiva pensaría todo lo que digo.

Daría valor a las cosas, no por lo que valen, sino por lo que significan.

Dormiría poco, soñaría más, entiendo que por cada minuto que cerramos los ojos, perdemos sesenta segundos de luz.

Andaría cuando los demás se detienen, despertaría cuando los demás duermen.

Si Dios me obsequiara un trozo de vida, vestiría sencillo, me tiraría de bruces al sol, dejando descubierto, no solamente mi cuerpo, sino mi alma.

A los hombres les probaría cuán equivocados están al pensar que dejan de enamorarse cuando envejecen, sin saber que envejecen cuando dejan de enamorarse.

A un niño le daría alas, pero le dejaría que él sólo aprendiese a volar.

A los viejos les enseñaría que la muerte no llega con la vejez, sino con el olvido.

Tantas cosas he aprendido de ustedes, los hombres…. 

He aprendido que todo el mundo quiere vivir en la cima de la montaña, sin saber que la verdadera felicidad está en la forma de subirla escarpada.

Me apartaría de los necios, los habladores, de las gentes con malas costumbres y actitudes.

Sería siempre honesto y mantendría llenas de amor y de atenciones a las personas a mi alrededor, siempre trataría de dar lo mejor…

He aprendido que cuando un recién nacido aprieta con su pequeño puño, por primera vez, el dedo de su padre, lo tiene atrapado por siempre.

He aprendido que un hombre sólo tiene derecho a mirar a otro hacia abajo, cuando ha de ayudarle a levantarse.

Son tantas cosas las que he podido aprender de ustedes, pero realmente de mucho no habrá de servir, porque cuando me guarden dentro de esa maleta, infelizmente me estaré muriendo.

Trata de decir siempre lo que sientes y haz siempre lo que piensas en lo más profundo de tu corazón.

Si supiera que hoy fuera la última vez que te voy a ver dormir, te abrazaría fuertemente y rezaría al Señor para poder ser el guardián de tu alma.

Si supiera que estos son los últimos minutos que te veo, te diría “Te Quiero” y no asumiría, tontamente, que ya lo sabes.

Siempre hay un mañana y la vida nos da siempre otra oportunidad para hacer las cosas bien, pero por si me equivoco y hoy es todo lo que nos queda, me gustaría decirte cuánto te quiero, que nunca te olvidaré.

El mañana no le está asegurado a nadie, joven o viejo. 

Hoy puede ser la última vez que veas a los que amas. 

Por eso no esperes más, hazlo hoy, ya que si mañana nunca llega, seguramente lamentarás el día que no tomaste tiempo para una sonrisa, un abrazo, un beso y que estuviste muy ocupado para concederles un último deseo.

Mantén a los que amas cerca de ti, diles al oído lo mucho que los necesitas, quiérelos y trátalos bien, toma tiempo para decirles, “lo siento”, “perdóname”, “por favor” , “gracias” y todas las palabras de amor que conoces.

Nadie te recordará por tus nobles pensamientos secretos. Pide al Señor la fuerza y sabiduría para expresarlos.

Finalmente, demuestra a tus amigos y seres queridos cuánto te importan.

*Gabriel García Márquez* “,

Pásalo a quién te importe, si no mañana será igual que ayer y les habrás privado de leer este texto lleno de sabiduría.
